The Retreat

Well the retreat is over ... there's Mass in the morning before we head back down to DC. I'm very glad I avoided email/blogging/cell ... it's been a very fruitful time in prayer and quiet (and some time with my novice brothers), with some much needed consolation of the Spirit. I think I'm finally over the deep homesickness. (Of course I still miss all y'all!) Exploring this gorgeous place was also a huge plus.

Here's some more photos.

And, the question of the year: Where are my feet pointing? Posted by Picasa

Isn't posting pictures of his own feet Jimmy Akin's blog trademark?

Gaswhin,

Dude! Their pointing directly at the pond.

Can you not see for yourself in your own photo. (Grin)

BTW...did you use a compass to determine the proper direction south (and take into account for magnetic north)?

Sincerely,

Dogwood

Dogwood: I was on retreat! Not on a geological field trip! :) I did look up an approach plate for EWR to see how the planes were routed in though ... :-D

Pritcher: I have no idea! I don't read Mr. Akin's blog as often as you do! This was my idea, dagnabit! :)
